Until 31 December 2021 there will be the possibility to take advantage of the incentives to buy new Euro 6 or electric cars, with a large dowry for the former in order to give breath to the Italian market. In fact, 300 million euros will be available, with 250 of these for Euro 6 and the remaining 50 for electric, which currently cost more. The main novelty is that among the Euro 6, non-polluting used vehicles will also be considered in order to obtain the incentive.
“For the final go-ahead it is necessary to wait until the Budget Committee of the Chamber will vote on the amendments to the Sostegni bis decree agreed and reformulated between the majority and the Government. There are about fifty targeted interventions aimed at supporting the sectors that have been most affected by the economic crisis triggered by Covid-19. The automotive sector is among them. […] 50 million will go to support the electric car market, which still pays for the high costs of cars, which end up making the incentive not very incisive, and the incomplete coverage infrastructural for supplies“, Writes Il Sole 24 Ore.
Germany, 1 million electric cars on the road in July
The reason why electric cars got fewer incentives is precisely the partial use of this resource in previous campaigns. The policy has therefore ‘rewarded’ the Euro 6 cars in the hope that we can begin to modernize the Italian car park, very polluting due to many almost vintage models that still circulate daily on the streets, with consumption and emissions much higher than those of any car in the current price list.
